History of Words

I'm past my prime! I had a prime about ten years ago.
You know what else? My name is cool. Words are cool. There are some projects that are all about words.

Ngram is not a graham cracker made with nutella. But wouldn't that be awesome...instead, it is a Google application that lets you input up to five words and find the ebbs and flows of its popularity over the last 500 years. It does this by mining a percentage of the books Google has digitized. It's a history of words through books.  It is teh awesome.

I heard of this project through the Wordnik website
